We are proposing to enable greater access to Extremely High Frequency (EHF) spectrum in the 100-200 GHz frequency range, given the potential to support a range of new wireless services in the future. Other countries are also looking to use these spectrum bands, including the recent decision of the Federal Communications Commission to make them available in the USA. By increasing access to this spectrum, UK innovators – and, in future, consumers – could benefit from international research collaboration, as well as economies of scale as new internationally compatible devices are likely to emerge.
We believe these proposals would help position the UK at the forefront of developing new services to use this spectrum and in doing so help deliver benefits to people and businesses.

We have published a second version of our “Supporting innovation in the 100-200 GHz range” consultation, initially published on 17 January 2020, to incorporate a number of clarifications, including on the proposed technical conditions that would apply to licensed devices used indoors. This is reflected by the following changes to the document:
